How this expert predevelopment team is elevating build-to-rent
In the burgeoning build-to-rent (BTR) space, there’s a new technology-enabled general contractor offering a comprehensive range of predevelopment supporting services for homebuilders and developers.Mosaic, one of the fastest-growing construction technology startups for the residential development industry, provides services from design through construction and into warranty. Their new predevelopment offering covers a comprehensive range of services for both for-sale and BTR developers, including:
- Site selection analysis and reporting.
- Conceptual design and land planning.
- Predevelopment project management.
- Initial construction budgeting and scheduling.
- Constructability analysis and value engineering.
- Final construction budgeting and scheduling, and trade subcontracting.
Managed by Mosaic’s highly skilled team of forward planners and construction experts, this critical predevelopment workflow gives BTR homebuilders and developers more predictability and transparency, helping them save time and resources. Mosaic’s predevelopment offering is a significant value-add to the company’s core tech-enabled general contracting services, particularly for BTR.“Build-to-rent represents an elegant solution to the national single-family housing crisis and provides a way to bring more (and much-needed) units to market, faster,” said Ron Gonski, vice president of growth at Mosaic. “Our predevelopment services leverage the rare expertise of our experienced, in-house BTR team and alleviate the stress of the complex tasks that are required to bring these communities to life. These additional services enable our partners to increase their capacity and deliver higher quality communities.”
What does this mean for residential developers?
Residential developers can expect to partner with one of the most experienced build-to-rent teams in the country, which has collectively managed development of more than 16,000 build-to-rent units in 68 communities nationally.Combined with Mosaic’s technology, this experience allows their team to deliver value throughout the entire construction process, which is exactly what Ed Gorman, president of Arizona-based MODUS Development, was looking for in a general contractor.“We’ve been looking for a partner with significant build-to-rent expertise, a full range of predevelopment and construction services, and a highly skilled team,” said Gorman. “With Mosaic, we’re getting all of that plus the transparency and predictability of working with a tech-enabled team.”
